Shouting this out will get me ejected from a tournament as it disrespects BDC?

This honestly is one of my biggest annoyances with the Tour these days. What does yelling any of that nonsense have to do with the game being played?? Yelling “Get in the Hole” on a 599yd hole from the tee? These guys are good, but come on!!Shouting mashed potato or baa baa boohie should get you drawn and quartered IMHO.
I think a combo of alcohol and dipshits might be the cause of some of this nonsense.This honestly is one of my biggest annoyances with the Tour these days.

I do agree with EClark, while taunts and getting a rise out of your; opponents, playing partners or forum members. For sure spices things up and has its place in sports 100%. I’m just not sure exactly what place it has in the game of golf. Especially when it crosses a line becoming disrespectful. Believe it was Patrick Cantly who said its different in a team sport setting. When Boston plays in New York, they go into the game knowing you’re the most hated people in that stadium for the afternoon. The next day you’re back in Boston and loved by your fans. Same can be said when the Habs play my Leafs on a Saturday night.
Golf is an individual sport, you don’t have teammates out there (except your caddie) and the interactions with fans take place so much closer. For a game so firmly rooted in respect and integrity, IMO anyway it just makes sense for the fans attending to be expected to adhere to that one simple rule. Be respectful!!!
